Nowadays, the pattern size of BLU (Back Light Unit) adopted in TFT-LCD (Thin Film Transistor Liquid Crystal Display) is typically a few tens of micrometers. However, recently, researches on the TFT-LCD output characteristics depending on various types of BLU patterns are being performed in order to improve the output and uniformity. In this study, we analyzed the influence of pattern size, distribution, and areal ratio on the output characteristics.
